What' that "standing-thing"?
It is a inner practise from ancient China. Laozi wrote about people who stood and connected heaven and earth.
Often this method of basic-qi-gong is practised in various traditional martial arts and represent a combination of physical structure-work and inner, contemporary meditation. Just like in the practise of sitting (dazuo orzazen), one wants to achieve highest presence and naturalness.
And why all of this?
Who is standing,
... will be conscious about her/him self
... will be rooted and will stand better
... is more relaxed and concentrated
... is strengthening his inner structures (fascial net)
... will move in a better way
... and last but not least, will kill some time ;)
more will follow soon...
